Active Single Coil Pickup wiring for strat

Hello, I'm new to active pickups and I'm thinking about putting 3 active single coils in one of my strats. I got the pickups just by themselves and no preamp so I don't really know what to do about the preamp or what i should use. Could any one enlighten me? A diagram would be great too. Thanks!

If you're using EMG's they have the preamp built into them. Here's a link to EMG's wiring diagram for 3 singles....

Hope this helps!
